This board is a monster and that was what I wanted. I am 6-4 and 260lbs and this board floats me easily and is very stable. Awesome for calm water or ocean. Not really for riding waves. Good tandem board for additional passengers. I love the ties downs and used them to store my fishing gear. Some things to think about: this board is heavy and the handle is not substantial enough to comfortably schlep this thing around to far without some help. The deck pad should have come from factory nose to tail for grip. I bought one and cut it custom to hold my dog on front and for traction on back. I stepped off the back of the pad while riding a wave in and got hurt. I was disappointed that there were some imperfections on my board on delivery like bubbles in the finish and scratches but I already have lots of use out of it and have already forgot about that. I bought this board because I wanted absolute stability while learning to sup and fish. I took one star off for the center handle and the scratches.
